Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

Where Will Our Future Election Poll Workers Come From?

When you went to the polls today to vote I am sure you notice the people who were there to assist you with your ballot. In most locations, you will see the same people working there, election after election. God bless them for their time in assisting us in voting. They get there at 5:30 in the morning and leave there at 7:30 at night in some cases. It is a long day and depending on the turnout, a very long day in many cases. Most of these workers are elderly and retired which leads me to the question, "Who is going to replace them when they are gone?"
